Have you ever dated someone with an addictive personality?
*The few people I’ve dated raise their hands*
If you have, or if you have an addictive personality yourself, you know that tunnel vision doesn’t even begin to cover it. Let me paint you a small picture. A small picture that will undoubtedly become large because ya know, addictive personality, commit fully to things, etc. When I like a new song I play it on repeat for 7-9 days until I can no longer stand it. When I want a new job it’s all I think about and I go insane prepping for it. When I fall for someone it’s incredibly consuming. And when I decide I have a dream, there’s really no if, and, or butts about it. Except for this dream. Cause this one, it scares the crap out of me.
I Have A Dream
I want to write a book. I want to write a book so badly I can already taste the feeling of success I’d get when I open the first edition. But more than that I want to write a book I want you all to read a book that I’ve written. I want to write a book that makes you pull out your highlighter to remember passages of self love for later. I want to write a book that you pull recovery quotes from to hang on your mirror. I want to write a book that will make lives better. So see, my dream is a pretty heavy one. Because to sum it all up: I want to write a book that changes the way we speak about eating disorders, encourages body acceptance in a brand new way, and makes every woman reading it compelled to love herself fiercely.
Other dreams of mine revolve around cheese. But back to THE dream….
So About This Book
It won’t be my first. I wrote a book that was 90 pages and was way too similar to Dial L for Loser (remember Kuh-laire and Mahhhsie?!) when I was in middle school. Yeah, that’s what I did on my weekends in middle school. Wrote a book. But this book, this book for Healthyezsweet Life would be the biggest thing I ever do. Or…the biggest thing I don’t do. Because like I said, the commitment and time and passion required to make this book a reality scares the crap out of me. Right now I have a rough idea of what I want this book to include:
- Eating disorder recovery resources
- A guide to quit counting calories
- A section on transitioning into Intuitive Eating
- A section on exercise and how it may be associated with your eating disorder
- How to transition back into exercise after recovery
- The last demons to fade away once you think you’re fully recovered
- What it means to be fully recovered
- Why weight restoration isn’t everything
- The benefits of weight gain
- The ugly truth about weight gain
- How to start loving yourself slowly and relentlessly
- The truth about how hard it is to love yourself at your worst
- How to learn to feel confident at your highest weight
- The pros and cons of social media
But like I said, more than I want to write this book I want this book to be devoured by you. So now it’s your turn to tell me what you’d like to see. Nothing is off limits and everything is fair game. I won’t be confined by word limits or SEO accessibility or days of the week which I post on. This book is going to be everything and anything. So tell me what you want to see below. I’m excited and nervous and giggly and terrified and everything in between to get started.
What is the most important thing you’d want this book to include, and why?
Have you ever had a dream that intimidated you like this? Did you go after it?
